Peppermint Ginger Cookie Recipe
Yield: 12 cookies
- store-bought ginger/molasses cookie dough
- 1 cup peppermint candy, finely crushed
- 3 cups white chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Keep this one easy and bake store-bought cookie dough following the package's instructions (Image 1). (We went with a ginger-molasses cookie.) Once baked, allow cookies to cool on a baking rack (Image 2).
While the cookies cool, combine the chocolate chips (Image 1) with the vegetable oil (Image 2) in a glass or ceramic bowl, then microwave on 50 percent power in four 30-second bursts, stirring until smooth (Image 3).
Once the chocolate is sufficiently melted, dip each cookie into the melted mixture halfway, coating it on both sides, then quickly place on wax paper.
Top With Peppermint
While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle crushed peppermint onto the top of each cookie (Image 1), then place in the refrigerator to cool for about 15 minutes (Image 2).
If you're looking for a fun way to present these delicious cookies to guests, try stacking them. Place a square of wax paper between each cookie, then tie off with a festive baker's twine.
